About the Ride
Enjoy the beautiful roads winding through the heart of Virginia as you pedal along with other cyclists riding to create a world free of MS! You'll love the scenery as you travel past historic sites and rustic farmlands embarking on an unforgettable journey.
This fun and safe ride is fully supported with rest stops every 10-15 miles, Support and Gear (SAG) vehicles, medics, and bike mechanics from sponsoring bike shops.
We conclude the first day in historic Williamsburg, VA where cyclists enjoy a scrumptious feast, massages, musical entertainment and an evening program. Sunday's route heads cyclists back to Richmond, VA for another fun finish line celebration. The sense of accomplishment that you'll feel as you cross the finish line can only be matched by the knowledge that you are making a difference in the lives of people affected by MS.
The National Multiple Sclerosis Society is dedicated to a vision of a world free of MS. Your participation in Bike MS provides help for today and hope for tomorrow by funding education programs, support services, advocacy, and research.
